, the former redevelopment agency and now oci to move forward to collect tax increments and fulfill that housing information and that's an informational item related to preference. to both of these items are on your agenda. i like to ask deputy director jim to present this item. >> chair johnson, members of the commissioner, my name is jim, deputy director at the successor agency as director bohe indicated the issue before you is getting the state department of finance to determine that the housing obligation exists for housing that was destroyed before 1976. by a way of background to talk about how this sits within dissolution law, i wanted to go over the highlights. so we know at this point in the 20th month of dissolution, that enforceable obligations are the key to what is the agenda for successor agencies. we know that the dissolution law, although it requires successor agencies to wind down as quickly as possible allows activities to continue if they further preexisting enforceable obligations. we also know that in designing enforceable obligations and what can be spent f
it among stake holders. 3030 shows the $3 billion that will be available. if the projected taxes and go bonds are approved by the voters, that will bring us to 70 percent of funding on that need. and we've divided those into core system and investments and enhancement, and expansions. and the vast majority is in core and enhance. so the revenue, what the task force wanted to do is to lack at all revenue options that we know of or potentially available and we have identified three basic, large potential revenue sources. two is two $500 go revenue and that can be used to improve or enhance property, so it doesn't include rolling stock so the big program to replace the vehicles and to increase the number of vehicles would have to come from either the vehicle license fee or the sale's tax increase. the second is vehicle license fee as you recall back in 2004, the state reduced the vehicle license fee from the current at the time 2 percent to point 65. in the recent past, the state passed local governments with approval of the voters to reinstate up to the full 2 percent of the vehicle
except for the enforceable obligations, the major projects we still have, where is the tax increment supposed to come from to build the housing obligations and where can the projects be built? >> with regard to the source of the tax increment, it's limited to those limits plans that was amended. we're talking about income point south beach, western edition a2, golden gateway. those are the most significant generateers of property tax revenue. and the housing can be built anywhere in the city under the replacement housing obligation. the one for replacement -- the law allows for the housing to be built in the former agency. >> second question. so i was looking through all of the documents and they don't actually have -- i'm sure it changes overtime -- affordable level when we talk about moderate income level, are those levels paid to anything anywhere? >> first of all, the housing has to meet the community standards for affordable housing which generally is under 120 percent of income. s p2113 has an additional requirement that 50 percent of the housing that would be completed ha
today, i'm introducing a tax measure for the november ballot that will impose a tax on sugar sweetened beverages. the proceeds of the tax will be a special tax an go to fund nutrition active and physical activities and health programs in our schools, in our parks and other venues. colleagues, we are experiencing an epidemic of health problems relating to the consumption of sugar sweets and beverages including diabetes, obesity, affecting adults, children, teenagers, etc. a tremendous amount of work has been done by physicians and research and advocates showing there is a direct link to diabetes and other ailments. supervisor mar, cohen and avalos have also worked on this issue. this is one of those issues that is and has to be a group effort and it takes a village. any other it -- i know it will take a village to get this measure passed. the statistics are alarming. a third of san francisco children are obese or overweight. every one beverage increases the risk of diabetes. one in 3 children born today will develop diabetes in a their lifetime if sugary drinks do not decline. 10 percen
'm really concerned especially when we talk about sale's tax and there may be some data that indicates that sale's tax is paid by people who aren't necessarily resident of the city, but what bothers me is people who visit the city are increasingly deciding not to visit the city because of a couple of things. the sunday meetings, the sale's tax, the fees at the restaurants for healthy assess and all of these other things. i constantly hear complaints and these are in the east bay and how oakland are changing their restaurant scene and making changes and people are choosing to stay home rather than visiting san francisco. i don't want us to begin, i guess, nickel and dime people out of wanting to participate in what's happening in san francisco. when we look at sale's tax as a possible recommendation, i have concerns and i don't see any desire for me as a resident to support that as well. and when i talk about -- when i specifically mention public housing resident, as i said before, many of them truly rely on public transportation. when you say that people participate in this are 1

today. it takes a village and the village is out. it's not often we get to say the words "our tax dollars at work" with a smile on our face. but we're doing it today. because voters really knew what they were doing a few years back when we passed that $185 million parks bond, neighborhood parks bond and the $10 million invested into lafayette park. i used to live at hyde and geary my first four years when i moved to san francisco, now 36 years ago, and this was my neighborhood park. and i've loved it ever since. the combination of the palms and the pines and everything in between, this is a jewel of a park. and when i saw the fences go up i got a little nervous because, well, it was going to be closed for a while. and i saw on some of the signs that some trees were going to come down which always makes me a little uncomfortable. but now seeing the result, it is magnificent. and, so, i want to thank all the folks who have invested their time and their efforts to make sure that the tennis courts got their renovation and the pathways were upgraded, the a-d-a improvements, of course,

thing in discussions now is on the benefit side of ownership resources. there's tube citywide tax credits it caught after this was published. the sequa regulation has b there been an attempt to do a budget for a citywide survey and a tim with the staff. we've mauled over a few numbers but nothing concrete >> so when we're talking about a citywide level it's hard to understand what kind of of an effort if we don't know the details la is going into their 7th survey and they're going to be done before we start. on the property owners prospective there's a lot of misinformation of what it means to be surveyed. without your property being surveyed your going to to go through the interior sequa process every time so having a citywide survey could make that process smoother and quicker. and last i would like to understand with jane kim's follow on legislation on sequa if there's any per view that the h pc can have on the resources that are not under articles 10 or leveling and whether the ar c can hear those. i believe there might be some ability to bring some of that to the ar c. that'

, both sale's tax and other revenue camping in the area where we've had a more rebust plan and we didn't deal with the task force. i think we need a much more expensive -- there was a long list of folks. if you look at that list and city staff, i don't think that by its own numerical listing of how many people were on there shows the representation. you heard from the board. around the expenditure plan itself, we need a more wider conversation. you heard the idea today that if you have a more closed group of folks making decisions, the expenditure plan is going to follow that. i think peter from the transit rider union brought this idea around and more importantly the notion that we're going to be able to provide more service, simply by didding state of good repair, replacing our vehicles, that's a necessary thing but it's not significant to add the kind of service improvements that we think are necessary and the system need and what the staff can do to develop an equity to tie the revenue where the expenditures might going. having real transparency and monitoring and it's importan
is in hand. that includes mostly federal and state money and the prop k sale's tax. and that amounts to 3.8 billion leaving almost a $6 billion unidentified need. so the findings so far is that the infrastructure is inadequate in that transportation services will further decline without new investment. making required improvements to the system is estimated to cost $10 billion over the next 15 years. the city identifies some of the money we mentioned leaving a $6 million gap. so the recommendations, the over view is to invest in programs with a greatest positive impact and there are three priorities to maintain the system, to enhance the system, and to expand the system. and to pursue three revenue sources that when combine would address half of that remaining need. and the third recommendation is that the work is not finished even if all these revenues were to come in and all the projects on with be completed, there are still significant unmet need and that the city should continue to support regional, state, and federal policies that would bring more money to the city. this upside
